The Perception of Value and Effectiveness of Today’s PMOs



Join us on July 29th at 1PM EST as LeRoy Ward presents the findings of our latest survey and gives his perspective in ESI’s newest webinar:



2015 Global State of the PMO

According to the survey, PMOs are gaining popularity but must constantly work on adding value (and adding value the right way):

  • 33% of PMOs have had their value challenged, mostly by senior executives
  • 4 of the 6 most common services offered by PMOs are seen as tactical, NOT strategic
  • Effectiveness measurements are focused inward as opposed to outward, around the customer

How will PMOs adjust to show value to senior executives and the rest of the organization?

LeRoy Ward will present on these new findings from the report and give his perspective on the PMO’s current state and the things that organizations and PMOs can do to solve for challenges.


• Details about the survey and its background
• The Value and Effectiveness of the PMO
• The PMO’s role in Skills and Career Development
• The PMO’s role in Agile
• PMO Challenges and obstacles
